For many of us, the panic is no doubt about to start setting in. The fact is that Christmas is not too far away, although it’s actually a couple of months, the dread that every wife, girlfriend, or fiancé has about buying their significant other a suitable gift is rearing its ugly head! And while there are plenty of guides on gifts for girls, women and female significant others, there aren’t many that really nail it down for guys without it being a joke present or deodorant! So here is the definitive guide to getting what a guy really wants, and to make it even easier it’s going to be presented in category form.
Let’s say this right off the bat, every guy wants to be a musician/rock star/insane guitarist, It’s a fact of life (well, for the most part anyway). So what better way to help him on this journey by giving him the musical gifts he really wants or actually helping him towards playing the guitar for real? The best gifts in this category are the instruments he really wants to play. Or if you can’t justify the room for a massive five-piece drum kit, there is always a compromise in this respect. There are electric drum kits which fold away or if you can’t stand the noise of an electric guitar, then get an acoustic one. The other option is to give him a great sound system or get him into vinyl. There are many turntables you can get for a great price, or you can get him a sound system for the car.
Every man wants to look their best, but if you get him deodorant every Christmas and every birthday, he’s no doubt going to start thinking that he smells a bit! So you need to find a craftier way around this. A very practical approach to getting him a stylish present is to get him an all-purpose grooming kit, or an electric shaver, and you can find plenty at places like Manly Matters or any other stylish retailers. When it comes to buying products that relate to style, and you don’t want to go down the deodorant or aftershave route, the best way is to go for the practical approach!
The Big Kid In Him
Every guy has a playful side or if you want to give him something to occupy his time while you’re busy sorting the house, you could always get him a retro games console. The Sega Genesis comes with dozens of preloaded games that will remind him of when he was a kid, and if he never has those games, he will no doubt be transported back to when he was desperate for a console for Christmas!
Don’t forget, guys love Christmas too! It’s a fantastic season full of merriment, but try not to get him something that is a gift for the sake of being one! You don’t have to spend a lot of money, but cover one of these options, and he will have a fantastic Christmas!
